The Houston Texans' Kareem Jackson struggled through his rookie season, having trouble covering receivers.
One thing he can cover: Cockfighting.
Jackson made his debut as a sideline reporter via Twitter, as reported by CBSHouston, which is the web outlet for KILT-AM.
Besides the picture shown here, he offered the following analysis of a cockfight he attended while on vacation in the Dominican Republic:
-- Look at all these people that be at these chicken fights, you would think its a college football game.
-- My first time ever seeing chicken fight till the death it was crazy...
Yeah, it's always crazy until the death.
